There is a bug when entering text within an Android application:

After completion of a word via the suggestions over the keyboard, a space is added automatically at the end of the line. When entering now a punctuation, e.g. full stop, comma, colon,... this space is not removed.

Expected would be the same behaviour than in the native environment.

same behaviour also for text entered on input text on OS browser

Thanks for reporting this bug. It has bothered me ever since I've got my Jolla!

Oh yes, please :) Should be valid for most languages, but keep in mind that e.g. French actually demands a space before some punctuation characters.

In French, it's indeed more complex: the comma comes without a space after a word. However a question mark requires a space after the last word. Tricky rules there...

Re: native environment, I noticed that the space is not actually removed - the punctuation is just inserted before it. This is inconsistent with the behavior when typing manually, I have opened a related suggestion.
